Every month, The Groundbreakers puts an inspiring initiative, product or company in the spotlight. By sharing knowledge and inspiration, we want to stimulate sustainable developments and we hope to contribute to the greening of the business community. This time we would like to highlight BonTon's waste separation module. A product aimed at optimal reuse of our raw materials.


Companies and individuals are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of recycling and a clean environment. Waste such as paper, plastic, organic waste and residual waste is given a new destination as raw material, building material or fuel through recycling. By separating the waste in our office in an environmentally conscious way, we also contribute to a sustainable working environment and we make an active contribution to reducing the CO2 footprint.


Separating waste is important so that it can be processed correctly. Waste contains many materials that, after cleaning and sorting, can either be reused in their entirety or taken apart after which the materials can be reused separately. We call this recycling. The rumor that separated waste ends up in the big heap is absolutely untrue. Only very polluted waste can be incinerated. Therefore, ensure that the separation is done carefully to prevent the waste from ending up in the incinerator.

Waste separation module

The BonTon waste separation module is made of 100% recycled polypropylene (PP) from construction and demolition waste and bulky waste. Due to the use of recycled plastics, each waste unit has a unique appearance. In addition, each unit is provided with a colored sticker to indicate the waste stream containing waste bags in corresponding colours. If in doubt about the type of waste, the Waste separation guide of Environment Central. This can also be downloaded in an app which makes separating even easier!
